Paris Trip Planning – Some outfit Inspiration for Casual Chic Tourist Look

6 Mar

My husband and I are going to Paris for the very first time in just 5 1/2 weeks (ee!) so I’m trying to think of what to pack/buy for my day-to-day wear.  Unfortunately, since weather varies so greatly, I’m a little unsure what to take but here are some ideas of cute ouftits I found on Pinterest for my museum visits and trips around the gorgeous city.  I created a board you can follow here with more inspiration.  I think I might lay out outfits for the trip before I go to plan a bit better:

The above outfit (image via Pinterest) is SO cute.  I love this red coat (and score – I have a red coat) striped top and black pants.  The only thing I don’t have on the above is the leopard flats, but lucky for me, Nordstrom has a pair of super fun leopard toms that seem to be comfy.


The above all black outfit is to die for (minus the heels – I wouldn’t wear those in Paris!).  I like the girl’s use of a necklace for a pop.

I LOVE wedge tennis shoes right now.  I think the two above are wearing the super expensive Isabel Marant ones that I can’t afford…. but I have a pair of Target knock offs.  I’d pair this with jeans and a nice leather jacket.  I don’t own a leather jacket so that might be an expensive item to purchase!  Oh I would love to be miss Kate Moss above!


I also want this above coat that I found on pinterest!! I absolutely love it, would kill to get my hands on it.  I just honestly have too many jackets.

Here’s another outfit that I absolutely LOVE, bc the colors are just on point and she’s layering.  I would have to really search for a sweater in this perfect pink.

and finally, the perfect casual outfit.  Chambray Chic.  I don’t have a chambray top or a scarf that fabulous so I’ll need to get both.  This would be great for the airplane or the first day in the city.


Michelle Obama’s FAB Jason Wu Dress part two

21 Jan

She did it AGAIN!  She pretty much put Jason Wu on the map in 2009 (and in my closet, thanks to the Target colab!) and surprise surprise… Michelle Obama wore a Jason Wu gown to the 2013 Inaugural Ball again this year.  Check out this crimson dress…. do you like?!

First Lady Michelle Obama wears Jason Wu

I LOVE how the Pres. stares lovingly at his wife,,, aww ❤

Her halter dress is freaking adorable, and I love that she cinches her waist to accentuate it. Her arms are KILLER…. you can see them better here:


So apparently, according to this Huffington Post article, 15 designers submitted for this gig.  Pretty crazy.  I love that MOBama chose this dress, she is gorgeous in red.  *swoon*

PS: Michelle Obama apparently DOES pay for her dresses from her OWN money (she used to be an attorney) – just to put people at rest.

In other news…. have you heard about the new Target and Prabal Gurung colab coming up?! 🙂 *excited*
